About Us

We are committed to seeing Auburn thrive and grow. Read about our beginnings.

How We Started

AIDA (Auburn Industrial Development Association) was established by a New York State Legislature act in 1969 as a public benefit corporation to serve private sector industrial and business development opportunities.

Our Purpose

AIDA encourages economic growth through financial incentives. Whether helping to establish a new business or expand existing ones, we provide the needed resources to create job opportunities that contribute to a healthy and prosperous economic environment.

We have helped attract and retain innovative businesses including NUCOR Steel, Currier Plastics, and the Auburn Community Hotel (Hilton Garden Inn) and grow vital companies such as Community Computer Services, Wegman’s Food Markets, Auburn Armature, Inc., and Carovail.
